The Spelling Bee in Washington DC .... the semi-finals are today and a new champion soon!!! oh and by the way, most of these kiddos wanna be neurosurgeons ... imagine that "team" of doctors breakroom!?!!! have a great day, m

can you say C A L I F O R N I A?!!!

Wow ... what a story! God is good. Doug has accepted a job in CALINFORNIA ... Fresno to be specific. And he's already started!! "Toto, we ain't in Kansas anymore!!" such a whirlwind. Again, God is good. Proverbs 3:6 Please keep us all in your prayers as in this economy this will probably be the most difficult transition of all. And, if you have NOT figured this out yet ...... ALWAYS AND FOREVER write our address in pencil!
